Skim by Mariko Tamaki

"‘Skim’ is Kimberly Keiko Cameron, a not-slim, would-be Wiccan goth who goes to a private girls' school in the early '90s. When her classmate Katie Matthews is dumped by her boyfriend, who then kills himself — possibly because he's (maybe) gay — the entire school goes into mourning overdrive. It's a weird time to fall in love, but that's what happens to Skim. Suicide, depression, love, homosexuality, crushes, cliques….and gamut of teen life is explored in this poignant glimpse into the heartache of being 16.”  - description from the publisher
